I had a fire down in the shop last year and after that told my wife only outdoor charging from now on. I was using an older charger that still worked fine but didn't balance charge as I would use a Blinky to balance the packs. I was charging an older pack and my charger didn't recognize a bad cell near the end of the charge since it didn't have the built in balance port. I did buy myself a new balance charger from H.K. right after that happen and feel like I have a better handle on charging my packs. John
If I could fit in my plane I would

I too balance often (and always outside of the plane!)

Don't know if you saw this ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIbHLacozFo

Even if you don't balance regularly, this video is a worthwhile watch. It explains why some batteries take forever to balance charge and never seem to reach a full charge.
